Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz lmn / M / 29 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrnad.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O weakness of the RLE and RUE since 2 days.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is a hypointense area on the T1 Weighted images within the left putamen posteriorly and the body of the caudate nucleus on the left side. This is seen to turn hyperintense on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images and would most likely represent a fresh infarct.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
An area of altered signal within the left putamen posteriorly and the body of the caudate nucleus on the left side and this would most likely represent a fresh infarct.
